These suits combine unique shapes and cuts with gorgeous art for sun-drenched beach days, overseas treks, dazzling destination weddings, and weekend spa getaways so you can sizzle in the right way.
Bleu Rod Beattie’s Free Spirit line features bright, beachy patterns and has an ultra-comfortable fit. Well-constructed and soft, this two-piece ensemble holds up to the waves and can be subtly adjusted for a different look or cut. Pair the top with shorts, too.
Red Carter’s Positano line, featuring this Red Lobster suit, offers quality touches such as sturdy gold snaps and exquisite designs suitable for the best of occasions. Take one of the Positano suits with you to destination weddings (or on our own honeymoon), or lounge in style poolside at your favorite chateau.
Bleu Rod Beattie’s Between the Lines collection features lovely monochrome patterns in resort coveralls, bikinis, two-pieces, and one-pieces, with cross or strap back options. See this line, more from Free Spirit, and many others at http://www.bleurodbeattie.com. Also available at Nordstrom and Macy’s stores.
Red Carter’s Ciao Bella line is ideal for music festivals, pairing with jeans and skirts, and for spending long, languid days on a glistening shore or verdant riverbed. Check out the one-piece suits, bikinis, and two-piece options at http://www.redcarter.com; also available at Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.
You simply can’t go wrong with either of these brands since their style offerings are so versatile, and their suits are made to last.
